BANGOR, Maine — A Dedham woman and her 22-year-old daughter were stopped and detained by Maine State Police Thursday afternoon, and later arrested and charged in connection with a home burglary occurring earlier in the day.
“I noticed the vehicle they were driving matched the description of a suspect vehicle seen leaving the home of a burglary, so I pulled them over and detained them until deputies from Hancock County Sheriff’s Department arrived,” said Trooper Darren Vittum, who made the traffic stop on I-395 at 12:25 p.m.
Lorrie Gray, 52, and daughter Lindsey Ames — both of Dedham — were questioned before being arrested. Gray was charged with burglary and Ames was charged with burglary and violation of bail conditions.
Ames was free on bail after allegedly breaking into another home in Dedham. Both also were issued summonses involving a third Dedham home burglary.
Both women were then transported to Hancock County Jail without incident and were still there as of 10 p.m. Thursday. Ames is being held on $2,000 bail and Gray is being held on $1,000 bail. They are expected to appear in Hancock County District Court in Ellsworth Friday afternoon.
The Penobscot County Sheriff’s Department deputies also assisted with the investigation.
